I don't want to start a religious belief thread, because my beliefs
are a very private thing to me.
I do feel compelled to say though, if I were in this situation that
Bob finds himself in; I would do two things.
One, I would pray for this woman to receive guidance
from God and for myself to better understand what might have brought
her to this point in life.
Two, I would consider that God works in many mysterious ways. I don't
always understand His plans. I would have to wonder if this woman
getting involved in scouting is His way of re-directing her.
With her current lifestyle, something had to have happened to have
sent her in this direction! I would then do everything in my power to
assist her and make her comfortable. Far be it from me, to ruin or
consciously roadblock His plans.
Just something to think over,
